About Pedal to the Peak

Pedal to the Peak was a major challenge undertaken by the parents and staff of Herbertstown NS. A group of 7 parents and 1 teacher aimed to travel from the lowest point in Ireland to the highest point in under 24 hours. This involved a cycle from the lowest point, the North Slob in Wexford, to Carrauntoohil in County Kerry. Following this 270KM journey the group then aimed to hike to the top of Ireland. No one had ever attempted or completed this challenge before! The group completed the challenge in 16 hours and 40 minutes! On the same day, a group of 40+ parents and staff also hiked to the top of Carrauntoohil.

The Pedal to the Peak committee are delighted to announce the fantastic results of our June fundraiser.

 

Monies fundraised:         €38,990

Expenses:                  €2,355

Charity donations:   €4,000 (€2,000 to Clíona’s Foundation & €2,000 to CMRF Crumlin)

Net to school:            €32,635

 

We could not have achieved this amazing total without the involvement and dedication of so many people. Huge thank you again to the 8 cyclists and 40 hikers who participated in the event, to family, friends and sponsors for donating so generously and to the P2TP committee for all their hard work behind the scenes.

Here are some pictures of the Pedal to the Peak group training for the massive challenge!

Well done to Pedal to the Peak's Caitríona Farrell who is among the nominees for Cycling Ireland's Female Rider of the Month for June. Caitríona stands as the only woman in Ireland to have completed the challenge of travelling from the lowest point in Ireland to the highest. This of course included a huge 270KM cycle from the North Slob in County Wexford to Carrauntoohil and then a hike to the highest point in Ireland. The challenge was completed in 16 hours and 40 minutes. Caitríona racked up over 4000KM in training for Pedal to the Peak and is a very worthy nominee for the monthly award.

A selection panel from Cycling Ireland will assess the nominations, and the monthly winner will be announced towards the end of that month.

The awards serve a number of functions, including;

- Recognise the achievements of riders and volunteers throughout the year.
- Ensure performances across all the disciplines and strands of cycling are recognised.
- Involve the cycling community in the recognition of cycling throughout the year
**The awards are sponsored by Aqua Blue Sport**
